Staring Down The Barrel of Mega Millions

It’s currently 9:15pm. In 45 minutes, someone’s life will change. Forever. I’m slightly ashamed to admit that I wish to be that person. Yes, I bought a Mega Millions ticket. I bought 10 actually, but only 8 of them are mine. 2 belong to my friend Tricia. Ah Tricia…how do I describe her. Friend. Platonic.... Read more »

Throwback Monday: Riot Fest Day 3 of 3
OK…So, I’m not sure if this counts as a throwback since I never published it.  So yes,  this one is delayed. I have no excuses, other than I have a job, and a very active lifestyle.  It’s 11:15pm and I got home a little while ago. Started my work day at 7:30am, proceeded to jiu... Read more »

A Perspective on the Bill Cosby Case

A Perspective on the Bill Cosby Case
This Bill Cosby thing was on my mind all morning. When I refer to this “thing”, I’m referring to this outpouring of sympathy across my social media for his sentencing, and for the fact that he could quite possibly die in jail. I just don’t get it. The man had 60 accusers, spanning decades. Now, I’m a... Read more »

Dating And Sex In Chicago: The Summer 2018 Edition
So, I’m going to tell you a story, and all names have been changed to protect the guilty.  Let’s start by acknowledging that there will be very little discussion (unfortunately) of sex in this blog.

Have you checked out Warm Belly Bakery?

Have you checked out Warm Belly Bakery?
As I type this, on my increasingly problematic iPhone 6s, I am sitting in Warm Belly Bakery in West Loop. Now, anyone who knows me on a personal level knows I am not a fan of the West Loop. I’ve worked here for 3 years. The parking is horrendous. I call it the #PoopLoop because... Read more »
